Sowing the Seed of Dissension
; Among German Peasants.
Koch Refuses to Disclose the Secret of His
Discovery— Bismarck Assumes a
Copyrighted, 1890, by the New Tort AJ»oc!»te<l
Bebi.ts, Dec. 27.— The Sooialist leaders
issued a manifesto to-night, affirming the
. determination of the Socialist party to rally
the peasants around tho fla? of Socialistic
reform. It says the lif* ot agricultural la
borers is scarcely human, Rid that they are
•erfs In all but nam°. Tho bright dawning
of a new era shall bring rejoicing to the
peasants as well as :o the tillers in the cities,
*nd they shall learn that they have a right
to the beautiful earth, the fruits whereof
they may stretch forth UiPir hands and
enjoy. They mu-t be taught that the patri
archal system is the mortal foe of the
agricultural laborer. The peasant proprie
tor and the aristocracy are becoming brandy
distillers, and will make the peasants the
slaves of machinery, as town workers have
already been made. Themanifeuo asks the
members of the party to contribute money
to assist the rural propaganda. Behind the
declarations in the manifesto, which the
Government might disregard, are practical
arrangements for lecture tours, the forma
tion of rural branches etc., which are
already having a disquieting effect upon the
official mind. The nature of the manifesto
was known to the Government before its
publication, and the matter was referred to
the Emperor, who instructed that nothing
should be done to suppress it.
It has been discovered that a spurious
ttTitation of Koch's lymph is being manu
factured and a number of cases are reported
in which foreign medical men h;ive been
... deceived into purchasing it. The manu
facturers have not yet been discovered. The
rm dical profession throughout the empire is
growing more and morn indiennnt over
the manner in which the lyuwh is dis
tributed and Koch's secrecy regarding
its production. Koch, in an interview
with an cmineut English phvMcian,
who urged the professor to disclose the whole
process, got very wroth at the proposal and
declared he h;:d a rieht to ilu as he
pleased with his discovery. The Tageblatt
assails this position as scandalous and .-ays
the capacity of Koch's clique will cirtainly
be severely criticized when Minister yon
Gosslt-r moves in the Landtag a grant for
Koch and his assistants of 3,000,000 mark?,
with filteen per cent on tlie annual sales of
Tlie treatment ia the ca3e of William
Degan, who came here from Xew York, has
proved a failure. He has had four injections,
and his symptoms are the same as when lie
The prospects of the submission of the
Conservative majority in the Landtag on
the Commercial Reform Bill has become re
mote. Bismarck's orgm, in a series of
articles, evidently inspired by the ex-Chan
cellor, urges the Conservatives not to
yield. Tlie Government organs assert
that the Government is resolved
to ntaiiifcin too project In its in
irgrity. The Liberal press continues
to clamor for immediate dissolution.
Other menacing causes of a political con
flict are Emperor Williams' educational pro
jects and. tlie Austrian treaty of commerce.
The llamburger Nachrichten (Bismarck's
organ) leads the aggressive campaign. It
assorts that the Reichstag ought to be dis
•olved ami tlie sense of the country taken
on the projects which hay« never
benn submitted to the electorate and
which affect the highest interests
of the empire. Bismarck's tactics
in assuming the offensive against the
Government is supposed to toave been
adopted for tho purpose of fomenting and
exciting general parliamentary disorder
and embarrassing the Ministry in the hope
that he iniirut prove himself again an inevit
able chief. Yon Gossler is known to d.ffer
with the Enu.eror in regard to his ideas on
education. It is reported that he offered to
resign, but at the request of tho Emperor
consented to remain far the present to give
the Emperor lime to select his .-uecessor,
who, h is thought, will be Dr. Hiuz
peter, Emperor William's former tutor.

The Canadian Parliament Has No Authority
to Legislate on the Subject.
Ottawa (Ont.), Dec. 27.— Sir Johu Thomp
son says the Canadian Government has re
ceived no communication from the British
lColouial Office on the subject of the copy
*Tfefct question, except the transmission of
tbe views of a society of author?, already
published. Lord Knutsford is of the opin
ion that Canada has net the power to legll
late on foreign copyrights and it has not
teen agreed to corner thai power upon her.
Sir John Thompson has gooa reasons f..r
believing thai during the present nnd the
next S'Ssion of the Imperial Parliament,
legislation conferring that power will be
enacted. He is of the opinion th.:t the pas
sago of the Simtnds Copyright Bill would
not affect the Canadian question if that
measure gives British authors a domestic
copyright in the United Slates on condition
that the work is reset with American type
slid rebound in the United States. An
Order in Council was passed by the Canadian
Government some time ago asking the
Colonial Office to withdraw Canada from
tbe Berne Copyright Convention.
A Russian Newspaper Charges the Brazilian
. Government With Fraud.
Warsaw, Dec. 27.— The Courier pub
lishes the text of what purports to be a se
cret Brazilian decree for the encouragement
of immigration. Tiie di-cree teems to have
been Issued June 29, 1890, and bears the sig
nature of President Fouseca and Senor Gly
ceria. It contains forty-nine articles. It
promises immigration agents 120 francs for
every adult they send to Brnzil, sixty francs
for every child landed, and an additional
premium of 100.000 francs is offered the com
pany landing 10,000 immigrants in one year.
*■ lv addition tl>e immigrants are premised
substantial advantages, contingent upon the
signing of a declaration as to the handicraft
they intend t<> practice. The Courier com
plains that emigrants sailing for Brazil from
German ports arc never asked to sign any
declaration, and says, therefore, when they
reach Brazil they are tli the position of out
laws, having no riehti, and are forced to en
ter into contracts which practically convert
them into slaves. The Courier denounces
the system as a fraud and accuses the Bra
zilian Government of connivance.

A London Ylew of tbe Split in the Irisb
London, Dec. 27.— Parnell has left Ire
land, and is understood to be on his way to
the French capital to see O'Brien and Mrs.
O'Shea. If the Kilkenny elections had gone
in favor of Scully there might have been
some hope ol O'Brien casting in his lot with
his old leader. Though hitherto lorn by
contending emotions, O'Brien's attitude to
ward the anti-Parnellite majority has been
a little suspected. The Kilkenny vic
tory, however, will possibly throw
O'Brien into the ranks hostile to Parnell.
O'Brieu's hopes of a reconciliation
were destroyed by ths virulence of Healy
and the more wrathy and dangerous auger
ofDavitt. O'Brien's power in lrelaud and
his loyalty to the Catholic creed give him
great weight in the present crisis, hence the
struggle of the rival factions to capture his
influence, but even if he casts it in favor of
i'arnell it is doubtful whether or not he
could set Humpty Durnpty on the wall
again. At present Parnell's exchequer is
almost, if not quite, empty, and without
financial assistance he cannot hope to domi
nate such an active network as the priests
are able to develop.
The winter assizes in lrelaud afford
signs that a reign of order is returning.
Uravy sentences have been passed on two
ruffians convicted of outrages in Tipperary,

oaths, the tenants are beginning to show

funds ot the National League are to be de
voted to the maintenance of tenants evicted
under the plan of campaign and to assist
otiier sufferers. All disbursements are to L.c
made by Kenny and Webb, joint Treasurers

and Harrington that funds coming from
America be sent to Kenny and Webb.
Paiiis, Dec. 27.— The announcement of a
conference between the IrMi leaders, to
take place Monday, is iffii-irtlly stited to b
ririuature. William O'Brien complains of
the number of false statements m»de in the
newspapers here attributed to Gill and
himself. O'Brien especially classes as un
true the assertion that he would recommend
that Parnell De maintained as the leader of
the Irish party.
O'Brim, although beset by reporters, has
not breathed a word as to whether or not he
lavors reconciliation with Parnell. He h:is
received a letter from a leading tuglish
liadieal, st-ting that the Irish split must
soon h* repaired, otherwise the Liberals
will be forced to subordinate home rule for
Ireland to «:her questions. The Paris
papers generally lean toward Parnell.
THE SOCIAL QUESTION.
cnggcstioas Contained in the Pope's New
Paris, Dec. 27.— Advices from Rome state
that the PoDe lias finished Ihe draft of ilis
encyclical upon lha social question. His
Holiness h:is been working on the subject
for over a year, and at his request the most
competent economists and Bishops of the
different countries, including America, have
furnished memoranda. The Pope considers
this question the greatest of the present
time. The encyclical will be the crowning
act of the Pope's work in this dirrction.
The date of the publication has not yet
been giwn, but the Associated Press corre
spondent U en;ible<l to give Ihe substmce of
it now. The encyclical will review and ex
pound the whole question affecting wape
workers. The document will comprise
three parts. First, hi- Holiness will develop
the general principles upon which social
economy is founded and the dominant idea
of distributive ju^tire which should regulate
the intercourse of meu and the spread of
wealth. Tin Pope says distributive and
restorative justice is needed to prevent mis
ery nnd sweating on one side and exorbitant
riches and tyranny on thn other.
The second partcomprises the origin and
cause of the present condition of the social
problem. On this point his Holiness takes
a new thesis, first developed In his encycli
cal on socialism. The third part contains
the views of the Po:e regarding the reme
dies, beyond religious and moral influence,
to be advocated. His Holiness expresses
himself agaiu in favor of the intervention
by the State within Ihe limits previously
He condemns capitalism as now organized,
and advocates a more eojii table and just
distribution of riches. The Pope is con
vinced that Papacy and the church should
lead ih't present social and Democratic
movement, and will appeal 10 all conserva
tive forces, and to Protestants to aid in ie
curing the saftty of society.
The Pupe's physician says his Holiness
may live for some time yet, as he has a
robust constitution and is suffering from no

Shocking Story of a Host
A Cigar-Maker's Throat Cut and His Eodj
Horribly Mutilated by a Jealous
Special to The Mornisq Cam.
Satville (L. I.). Dec. 27.— A most brutal
murder was committed last night ut Bohe
mia, a small village three miles north of
this place. Late last evening Frank Krulis,
a cigar-maker, walked into tlie house of
Constable SHsheck, laid on the table a hu
man finger and said he had killed Winnie
Croupa, a fellow-cigar-maker, and had
brought a finger to prove it. The constable
first thought the man- was joking, but
Krulis said: "I mean what I say. Croupa
told lies about me Rnd I concluded to kill
him. I met him on the road to-night and
cut bis throat. X wanted to moke sure he
never would speak again so I cut open his
abdomen and placed his bowels over his face;
then I cut oft a finger for you." '
The constable hastily summoned a posse,
and accompanied by the murderer they went
out and found the body. It was a horrible
sight. It lay in a frame of bloody snow ;
the clothing was torn from it and a hole the
size of a sugar bml was in the abdomen;
the entrails lay over breast, neck and face;
the right ear and the index finger of the left
hand were missing. When the party re
turned to the village they were
met by an excited crowd, which
wanted to lynch Krulis, but tho
constable succeeded in getting him to jail.
When searched the missing ear was found
iv the murderer's pocket, and he told Judge
O'Brien he had brought it for him, and
handed the Judge the blood-stained knife,
with which the awful deed had b.-en com
mitted. Throughout the examination Krulis
conducted himself in a stolid manner. It is
believed jealousy of Croupa'* attention to
a younz woman was one of the motives
Krulis had for the crime.
A Systematic Scheme for Swindling the Gov
New York, Dec. 27. — A Washington
special says that frauds by which the Gov
ernment has been robbed of over $1,01)0,000
wiihin the past twelve months have been
brought to the knowledge of Treasury offi
cials, and a searching inquiry is in progress.
The frauds were committed by Consuls and
Consular Agents of the United States in
Canada and by exporters of Canadian goods
to the United State*. Some twenty Con
suls, the larger number of whom are sta
tioned in the province of Ontario, are im
plicated in the charges. The process of the
fraud consisted iv the appropriation of Ille
gal fees and the undervaluation of exports
by tho exporter-!. Consular certificates In
blank were signed by the Consuls and Con
sular Agents aud issued for a nominal sum
for the use of exporters in u.akhie their
false returns on the value of tbe goods sent
to the United States. The evidence is not
complete as to the percentage allowed by
exporters for the privilege of undervalua
tion. But enough is known to show that a
systematic scheme of petty swindling hus
been carried un. The certificates were dis
tributed in great numbers. An estimate of
$1,000,000 as the a^in-gnte of the loss to the
Government is probably small. Further in
vestigation may show a loss of many times
that sum, aud that there are even more
guilty parties than yet discovered.

but he could only express his wishes by
6itins. Soon afterward he became uucon
scious. The physician fouDd that an ab
scess had funned on the brain, and that he
al*o was suffering from bronchitis. While
several medical men, who had been hastily
summoned, were in consultation in an ad
joining apartment, the nurse suddenly came
out of the patient's room and announced that
all was over. Schliemann sent a last mes
sage to his wife, Christmas eve, telling her
he felt much relieved of his bronchial
trouble and proposed to leave for Athens
Tuesday. Frau Schliemann, who has been
staying at Atheus, has left for Naples.

Tbe Work of Home Statisticians
Attracting General Comment.
Spe«I»l to The Mobniso Call
Washington. Dec. 27.— At to-day's ses
sion of the American Economic Association
a number of papers were read and the report
of Secretary Ely discussed. It represented
the association to bo in a prosperous condi
tion, the number of members and subscribers
on the list being 633. Tho national associa
tions on the other side of tbe world, tha re
port said, had received the impulse which
had givon them existeuce from the Ameri
can Economic Association. The report sug
gested the wisdom of continuing tho policy
of offering prizes for essays, the object being
to awaken public interest in economic topics
and lead to the formation of intelligent
opinion upon important imvtors of the day.
The report of the Committee on Statistic s,
by Hon. Carroll Wright, was read at the
evening session. The report said that as to
quantity the work of American statisticians
whs equal to that of auy other country. As
to quality, their work still fell somewhat
below the scientific characteristics which be
longed to continental efforU. The reoort
spoke encourageiugly of the progress of sta
tistical investigation and science in the
United States— a work which was viewed
with increasing respect abroad and was ex
citing widespread interest at home.
The evening session closed by the leading
of an interesting paper by Prof. H. C.
Adams, on "Statistics as a means of correct-
Ing corporate abuses." The ideas embodied
are that the granting of corporate privileges
should be limited to those husinesses in
which tho Interests of tho public predomi
nate over tbe interests of the individual 111
--corporators. All corporations should be re
quired to make such reports as will enable
the Government to dir ct their policy and
control their administration. Other busi
nesses should be subject to inquiry, with the
purpose of determining whether or not busi
nesi in any case should be required to as
sume a corporate f .mi.

A RARE OPERATION.
A Tumor llemored From the Brain of a
A surgical operation of rare interest, and
one which illustrates the wonderful achieve
ments of modern science, was performed by
a prominent surgeon of this city yesterday.
The operation consisted of nothing less than
the reniovel of a tuninr weighing two ounces
from the brain of a patient nt the Sisters'
Hospital. The operation was performed by
Dr. N. B. Carson, and was witnessed by a
number of his professional nrethren.
The operation of removing a tumnr from
the brain had been performed seventeen
limes up to 1889, and has been performed
several limes since. Several of these opera
tions have been done in St. Louis. Theease
treated yesterday is of special interest on
account of the unusual size of the tumor.
It is, of course, too early to know whether
or not the operation will result in the recov
ery of the patient, but it afforded the only
hope for recovery possible. A considerable
percentage of the cases heretofore operated
upen have been successful.
The operatlou of course involves the re
moval ot a uortion of the skull and the sepa
ration of the tumor by the use of the knife.
But the actual operation scarcely involves
as much skill as the diagnosing of the dis
ease and the locating of the tumor. Mt-dical
science, however, has so separa ted and de
fined the functions of the brain that it ena
bles the skilled surgeon to locate disease in
that organ, and it was by thU means that
Dr. Carsun located the tumor removed yes
terday. The accuracy of his diagnosis was
proved by the finding of the tumor exactly
where he bud located it from observiition of
the patient's symptoms. Tim character of
the tumor hns not yet been determined, but
it will be the subject of future scientific in
vestigation.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
